Welcome to our September update!
I always have mixed emotions about September. On one hand, I'm sad to see summer come to an end. On the other hand, the beginning of the school year is always full of hope and excitement. Plus, I love the fall weather and being outdoors with apples and pumpkins and mums.
If you are looking for an outdoor activity this fall, check out our Walking in Massachusetts column, which features Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill. For all of you folks with school-aged children, please read our Ask the Nutritionist column where Sandy Sarni answers a question on appropriate nutrient levels for children. We are also announcing the new Webinar Buffet and Smorgasbord activities for the year! They run from September 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023 - anyone can participate in these programs and MIIA/BCBS subscribers can earn prizes.
Lastly, MIIA has partnered with Brightline - which brings our members extraordinary behavioral health care for kids and teens, and support for parents and caregivers. Check out the Brightline piece below.
